Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of First Baptist Iva Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. First Baptist Iva members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.


Mission Outreach

First Baptist Iva is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. On a local note we have been providing a food bank for the past 12 years and are thrilled that God continues to open doors that allow us to meet the needs of those in our community.


Music & Choirs

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of First Baptist Iva, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.



The usher team at First Baptist Iva Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of First Baptist Iva Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video formats. 


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. First Baptist Iva Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, prior to the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, many members pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.


Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, First Baptist Iva  holds a children’s church service that meets after the choir special. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity.


Health and Fitness

Good health doesn’t start with healthy eating and regular exercise. The balanced life so many people long for—which includes good nutrition and physical fitness —begins with a change of heart and a transformed mind. Better Together, an all-new Bible study, invites members and participants to discover hope and motivation that will sustain them through a lifetime of fitness and good health.

This First Place 4 Health Bible study contains 12 weeks of daily studies to help you put Christ in first place, as well as weekly Live It Trackers to document your progress.  Also included are Scripture memory cards, a coordinating Scripture memory music CD, and two complete weeks of menu plans with grocery lists, recipes and detailed nutrition information.

A new 12 week session started Jan 16th and is now underway. This new session “Better Together” is sure to be a blessing to all who join. 

If you want it’s not too late to join this ministry.

Wednesdays Weigh-In at 5:30
